Day 58 – I need a vacation already

Not a lot to say.



Wishing I was back in the Virgin Islands.

I apologize in advance for my Wednesday and Thursday posts during school.

Day 57 – No pain, no gain

Man oh man was I sore today.  I don’t know that I’ve ever been so tired or sore in my life.  We still managed to take our morning walk at work and I even forced myself to get on the elliptical.  I’m really trying to adopt this whole “No pain, no gain” attitude, but it’s…well, it’s very painful.

However, I am now, officially, back into the 280’s.  Hurray!

I weighed in today at 289.6.  A 15 pound loss from mine and Cliff’s start, but a 30 pound loss from my highest on My Fitness Pal (so I’m going with that one).

I might be in pain and sometimes I might go to bed a little hungry, but I can honestly say that I’ve never felt this good in my life.  I know it’s going to get harder before it gets easier, but I know that this time I will put in my time and effort and I will be finished being unhealthy.  I’m living a new life that I feel motivated about every single day.  

Time for today’s weigh-in picture and a little bonus pic of the hubby on our way into work this morning.  I had a wonderful view (and I don’t mean the sky).

Quite possibly my favorite quote ever:

“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”

Day 56 – My First Zumba Adventure

I did it!  I went to my first Zumba class and it was awesome!  I couldn’t keep up with everyone in the class, but that was expected.  I’m just happy that I made it all the way through the class without stopping.  I hurt in places that I never even knew existed, but it’s a good hurt.  I don’t necessarily think that it’s going to be a good hurt in the morning, but we’ll see.  Regardless of how I feel tomorrow, I’ll be on that elliptical tomorrow afternoon.  

I work out 5 days a week.  That’s my life now.  No matter what, 30 minutes of activity (at least) 5 days a week.  

Well, it looks like I have a packed week for the next 3 months.  Zumba on Monday and class on Wednesday and Thursday.  Homework for the rest of the week.  

I’m soooo glad we decided not to celebrate Christmas anymore.  There’s no way I could keep this up through the holidays.

Now it’s time to relax and recap on The Walking Dead.
